The Houston Texans are shutting down their facility after a positive player COVID-19 test, the team announced Wednesday.

The Texans are currently on their bye week, so there is no immediate danger to the NFL's schedule. Houston played the Green Bay Packers in Week 7.

The AFC South club has placed guard Max Scharping on the reserve/COVID-19 list, a source tells Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

The Texans are the latest NFL team to close its facility due to the coronavirus.

The Tennessee Titans shut theirs for nearly two weeks amid an outbreak involving over 20 players and personnel.

The New England Patriots, Minnesota Vikings, Indianapolis Colts, and Atlanta Falcons are also among those to shut down their headquarters this season, but most were able to quickly reopen.
